Overview

The NRC’s FY 2014 Congressional Budget Justification provides the necessary resources for the Nuclear Reactor Safety and Nuclear Materials and Waste Safety Programs to carry out the agency’s mission and to achieve the stated goals and desired outcomes for the American public. The NRC’s proposed FY 2014 budget is $1,055.0 million, including 3,919 full-time equivalents (FTE), which represents an increase of $16.9 million, including a decrease of 57 FTE, when compared with the FY 2012 enacted budget.

The Nuclear Reactor Safety Program increases by $12.3 million, including a decrease of 40 FTE; the Nuclear Materials and Waste Safety Program increases by $4.4 million, including a decrease of 11 FTE, when the FY 2014 request is compared with the FY 2012 enacted budget. Collectively, the Nuclear Reactor Safety and Nuclear Materials and Waste Safety Programs have an overall funding increase of $16.7 million, including a decrease of 51 FTE, when compared with the FY 2012 enacted budget.

The Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG’s) component of the FY 2014 proposed budget is $11.1 million, and it includes resources to carry out its mission to independently and objectively conduct audits and investigations to ensure the efficiency and integrity of NRC programs and operations and to promote cost-effective management.

Under the provisions of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990, as amended, the NRC’s FY 2014 budget provides for 90-percent fee recovery, less the amounts appropriated for (1) Waste Incidental to Reprocessing Activities under Section 3116 of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 and (2) generic homeland security activities.
